Glazed Radishes (adapted from THIS recipe)
1 lb. radishes
2 Tbl. butter
1/3 cup water
large pinch of sugar
salt and pepper
Trim ends and tops off of the radishes. Cut any large ones in half if needed; you'll want all your radishes to be roughly the same size so they cook evenly. Place radishes in a small pan. Add butter, water, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover pan and cook over medium-low heat until radishes are tender, 20-25 minutes depending on size.
Uncover pan and continue to cook while stirring to evaporate the liquid down to a glaze consistency, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped chives.
After I used up all the radishes, I did a bit more internet sleuthing. It seems like a lot of folks really enjoy eating them like the French do: with plenty of butter and salt, on bread. Mmm...butter, salt, and bread. My three favorite things. I will definitely have to try eating radishes this way!
